Field Trip! Seeds Unit.

First I have to apologize for the poor quality of these photos.  I forgot my camera and had to use my phone's camera.

Friday I joined J's class on their weekly, outdoor field trip.  This week, we met at the school and then walked to a nature park about a mile and a half away. 

Along the walk to the park, the class happened upon some blackberries ripe for the picking.  Kids started enjoying their snack and then J was attacked!  By the blackberry bush!  Resulting in the stratches below.  =(

Once we reached the park, the class gathered together to discuss the plan for the day.  The theme of study this month is seeds.  The kids are to gather seeds to journal and discuss. 

Here is J sitting on a footbridge.  She is journaling the seeds she found.

The kids really did a great job of collecting several seeds each.  Then we gathered back together to talk about the seeds we had found. 

Then it was lunchtime!  We decided lunch by the creek would be a perfect end to our morning.
